A big welcome back to our first exciting term in Eagle Class!
It has been a super start to the Autumn Term and Eagle class have been working hard.
We have started English by exploring, Usborne Illustrated Grimm’s Fairy Tales, by Ruth Brocklehurst and Gillian Doherty. We will look at what makes effective story writing, before writing our own ending to a traditional tale. As mathematicians, we are learning about the importance of understanding numbers and place value. We are using the scheme, Power Maths, which builds in small steps to deepen understanding. We have also kick started learning our times tables, as this is an important year for Eagle Class.
We have commenced our journey using our enquiry skills in humanities to discover why the ancient civilisation, The Maya, were so magnificent. As scientists we are looking at animals including humans, focusing on the digestive system and how to look after our teeth. During RE, Eagles will start by looking at our new beginnings and in PSHE we will focus on ‘Being Me in my World’, thinking about ‘Who am I and how do I fit? In music, we will be looking at how music brings us together with a focus on time signatures within pieces of music.
We look forward to sharing our work with the rest of the school and to our families and friends as we enjoy our year as Eagles.
Many thanks, Miss Wilby and Mrs Fryers
